A PAEDOPHILE faces a lengthy jail sentence after he admitted urinating on a seven-year-old girl and forcing her to watch hardcore porn.

Two young victims of David Thompson, aged 60, were forced to give evidence during a trial before he admitted all 30 counts of child abuse in dramatic scenes at Bolton Crown Court this afternoon.

One of the girls had to endure another medical examination after giving evidence because of Thompson’s instructions to his lawyers - an examination that ultimately supported her claims.

The same victim was subjected to repeated abuse, which involved her being forced her to watch a porn film called Beyond Perversion and re-enact scenes from the DVD, the court heard.

She was also urinated on repeatedly by the defendant, and was raped and sexually abused numerous times over a three-year period.

Thompson, of Presto Gardens, Deane, initially denied the catalogue of abuse charges, which included raping the girl between 2009 and 2012, when she was aged between seven and 10.

He also denied sexually abusing another girl, aged between seven and nine, between 2005 and 2007, but he pleaded guilty on the third day of his trial.

He showed no emotion as he entered his pleas.

The jury of eight men and four women previously heard the abuse came to light when one of the girls confided in sibling, who then told their mother.


Neither of the girls can be identified for legal reasons.

Philip Parry, defending, said: “Something enormous has happened today - that he has admitted his guilt to me and to his wider family.

"It is a matter of great pity that this wasn’t done before Tuesday (the day the trial started).”

Judge Davies, addressing Thompson, said: “These are grave offences. You realise you face a substantial sentence of custody.”

During the trial a woman sitting on the jury put her hands over her face as the graphic charges were read to the court.

Family members of the victims and the defendant sobbed and hugged each other when the judge left the courtroom.

Thompson will be sentenced on Tuesday for six counts of rape, 12 counts of sexually assaulting a child under the age of 13, three charges of assaulting a child, six counts of causing a child to engage in sexual activity and three charges of causing a child to watch a sex act.
